Written By David D'Angelo on Wednesday, September 23, 2009 | 9/23/2009


25 years after their first meeting in the World Chess Championship in 1984, Anatoly Karpov and Gary Kasparov is once again battling each other in a historic chess rematch in Valencia, Spain.  Kasparov beat Kasrpov in the first set of a 12-game re-match.



24 years back Kasparov also snatched the World Chess Championship title from Karpov who was then the reigning champion representing the soviet union. Since then Kasparov had held the championship until 1993 when he established the Professional Chess Association while Karpov was the World Chess Federation (FIDE) world champion from 1993 to 1999. The chess world title was only unified in 2006.

The event is being broadcast live on Valencia's regional government website (www.gva.es).
